Abstract: Zooplankton growth and secondary production are key input parameters in marine ecosystem models, but their direct measurement is difficult to make. Accordingly, zooplanktologists have developed several statistical-based secondary production models. Here, three of these secondary production models are tested in the marine mysid Leptomysis lingvura (Mysidacea, Crustacea). Mysid length was measured in two cultures twice a day, which were grown on two different food concentrations. Growth rates ranged from 0.11 to 0.64 day-1, while secondary production rates ranged from 1.77 to 12.23 mg dry- mass day-1. None of the three selected models were good predictors of growth and secondary production in this mysid species.
